Kinetic parameters on heat-induced color changes of anthocyanin pigment from purple sweet potato were determined in the temperature range of $121{\sim}141^{\circ}C$. Color change determined by a browning index $(A_{532}\;nm/A_{420}\;nm)$ followed second order reaction kinetics. Activation energy values of purple sweet potato pigment solutions of pH 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0 were 69.57, 76.68, 81.07 and 92.98 kJ/mol, respectively, indicating that temperature dependency of the reaction increased with pH. Apparent kinetic compensation effect between preex-ponential factor and activation energy value was observed.
